Will Rogers once wrote, "Charlie Russell is the only western artist a true cowboy can't find fault with." Rogers also considered Charlie America's best storyteller, cowboy humorist, and sagebrush philosopher.

Though Charlie was under-schooled and semi-illiterate, his salty writings still delight readers eight decades after he crossed "the big divide."

Overview

Will Rogers once wrote, "Charlie Russell is the only western artist a true cowboy can't find fault with." Rogers also considered Charlie America's best storyteller, cowboy humorist, and sagebrush philosopher.

Though Charlie was under-schooled and semi-illiterate, his salty writings still delight readers eight decades after he crossed "the big divide."

Richard Bird Baker has long strived to bring Russell's wit, humor, cynicism, and horse sense back to life, depicting Charlie writing letters about current events, trends, and issues in colorful cowboy lingo. This edition is a must for fans of cowboy humor, salty metaphors, and sagebrush philosophy.
